Sarah's Visit With Santa

Sarah had another great visit with Santa today. Although she loves to point at him, she really isn't interested in sitting on his lap. I am suprised that she lasted as long as she did...

Fun At Crown Center

Earlier this month Sarah had a wonderful time at the Crayola playground at Crown Center. Joella met up with our church's play group where they got to shop for a little bit before playing at the great indoor playground.

Getting Closer to Christmas Time

Although the Christmas tree is not yet completely up, Sarah has already started getting into the Christmas mood. She did not want anything to do with Santa at the mall, but she loves pointing to his picture on her shirt. Here little reindeer Sarah is posing with baby Big Bird.










Sarah is fascinated by her bows and she needed all of them in her hair before she would read a story to Big Bird.








Last weekend Sarah had lots of fun playing with cousin Annaliese...






And Sarah tried to be gentle with cute cousin Jorjia...

Thanksgiving Fun

Here are a bunch of great pictures from our Thanksgiving weekend in Arkansas with Karl, Loretta, Maggie, and Amelia. Mollie and Lucy really enjoyed playing with cousin Cocoa too...especially since they will not be seeing her again for a long time.





Here are the Sommerhauser girls posing nicely for the camera like always...








Sarah and Amelia always love their story time.









Sarah was positive that the doll's cradle was made just for her (and boy does she love that Little Mermaid cell phone)...













Miss Amelia did an excellent job getting the marshmallows on top of the sweet potatoes.







Karl was happy as ever when he got the deep fried turkey out of the cooker...it did taste great and the turkey legs made great soup!







Maggie and Amelia posing on a bench during our hike. The weather was great and in the 60s that Saturday...






Karl, Maggie, Amelia, and Loretta taking a break...








Joella, Loretta, Maggie, and Amelia posing inside a hollowed-out, but alive, tree along the hiking path.








Amelia taking a break on a log bench.








Sarah was very content riding is Amelia's (used to be Maggie's) backpack carrier. Sarah only dropped snuggle bunny about 5 times and she was really excited when she found some velcro on the backpack that she could play with.








Happy Miss Sarah...

Busy Miss Sarah...

Sarah has been keeping busy since we returned to Kansas City from our vacation. Before Halloween, she even got to feed some goats (with Cheyenne's help of course) at the pumpkin patch. Sarah has gotten good enough with this that she can give Mollie and Lucy their puppy treats with just a little help from either mom or dad.



Sarah really enjoyed Aunt Lisa's visit last week and she was so excited to get her first pair of Dora jammies!










Here is a cute picture of Sarah snuggling with Aunt Lisa before bedtime.






Sarah was sick with the flu last week so she really just wanted to watch cartoons with Snuggle Bunny.





Before Aunt Lisa left, though, Sarah wanted to show off her new big girl bathrobe.










Of course even after bathtime, Sarah insisted on reading Dora one more time before going to bed...

A Few More Videos

Here is a video of one of the iguanas that we saw at Bahia Honda State Park.

We saw this iguana by our resort pool.

Sarah still does not quite understand how to hold her mouth closed when she goes under water, but she sure has fun anyway.
